That's what i wanted to hear!:victory:
I'm putting the tire on the driver side to avoid a blind spot when i look over my shoulder when i back up. If you tire is small enough to clear the passenger side door then id say make it a double...
Welcome to EXPO:wings::victory::coffee:
Thanks a lot...now if it will cool down i can build the tire carrier part:sunny:
On another note I've seen some really cool 4x4 Astro vans.
I can not believe you selling the Toyota so soon?..The only thing i don't like about the vans.... They are so hard to work on the engine.Other than that they are just as reliable as any old...
OUCH! That's gonna leave a mark.
Too bad your door does not slide open.The you could close the tire carrier than slide close your door.
Could you tie a rope to the swing away carrier then route it through the window of the door?
That's exactly what I'm using.Another benefit is they are also the same parts my suburban uses on it's front axle so now i have built in trail spares if needed.
Yeah my tire will be on the driver side. Jerry cans will be on the passenger side.
With a 37'' tire on the back i do not see many options to open a door without first opening the swing away. Any...
What made you choose a double swing out over a single?....that's where i'm at now.
I'm going to add some lights like you have there.
Good to know...as for air right now i just use my MV-50 compressor.
There are already holes in the main tube for wiring and such. The ends will still need work to attach my Axle hubs for the swing away tire carrier.
The bumper still needs to be attacked with a flapper disk to smooth and round all the edges before paint. Im leaving the hitch where it is due to the amount of towing i do.It has the factory skid...
Yeah i was quoted $1500 from a local builder.
What do ya think? This is just the bottom part, i still need to build the tire carrier part to hold the tire and 2 jerry cans.
To tell the truth im at 50% on this one. One actually snapped the caliper in half and let the tire/axle assembly go, and the other got me off the trail enough for a truck and trailer to get me the...
1991 burbs and crews had all the cool stuff they put into the "GMT" trucks.
the 14bsf has huge 33 spline axles , huge bearings that dwarf a normal mans palm , and extra ground clearance over a full...
I use beads in my tires too 6oz each tire...37'' KM2.
Works like a charm, my tire guy gives you a choice of balancing the old way or adding beads.
Couple of reasons i like them on the front.
1.Normally when i'm stuck on a trail and need to be winched out, i want to go forward over the obstacle, or sometimes i need to hook onto the vehicle in...
No, no lift. Shocks only stop the tire from bouncing after hitting a bump.
So the new coil springs Chevy is using? Are they on a strut type thing or are the separate like they used to be on the 2wd...
Adding a shell and all your stuff in the back will require spring capable of handling the weight. Custom springs will be pricey but the Add-a-leaf will be a lot cheaper and increase the spring rate...
If it was me, Id get me a utility type camper shell. And start building storage and sleeping quarters.The tires you have will go farther than you think on dirt roads and such. Maybe a small lift to...
Do you really need a winch?
